Oh, and he can still hit home runs too. That’s a photo of Manny’s reaction to a 450-foot homer he hit with the Iowa Cubs on Wednesday. I know there are some Cubs fans against the idea of Manny Ramirez serving in any kind of coaching role, but damn it, if every Cubs player that comes up from the farm learns Manny’s bat flip game first, it will all have been worth it.
Also, say what you will about him, but it’s not like his personality quirks negate the fact he’s one of the greatest hitters of the last 20 years. He probably has some useful knowledge he can share.
